Kingfishers 2019-2020

Another great week for Kingfishers!

Friday 13th September

Kingfishers have had a busy week, getting back into school routines with lots of learning. 

At the beginning of the week, the class learnt Roman Numerals, and then applied this learning to reasoning problems. Every child worked really hard at this and were starting to challenge themselves. Towards the end of this week, Kingfishers have focused on place value, looking at 4 and 5 digit numbers. 

In English, we have focused our learning on information texts. We identified the key features, and then practised writing some of these, including a glossary. Fronted adverbials have been our grammar focus this week. 

Our PE lesson on gymnastics focused on movement. The class had to consider different ways of moving around the hall. Some ideas were very original!

Thursday afternoon was very exciting! Each child buddied up with a child from Year 2. They then listened to each other read. It was lovely to watch. The class are looking forward to working alongside their buddies again soon. 

The class have worked really hard this week, and it has been fantastic to see the progress they have already made.

A fantastic start for Kingfisher class.

Friday 6th September

Everyone in Kingfisher class has settled really well back into school life. The class as well as parents have been very welcoming. 

The class have had lots of fun completing different activities related to our new topic. They have designed and made their own shields, sketched Anglo Saxon helmets and played a number of PE games related to invasion. The class have really enjoyed all three of these lessons. Kingfisher class also had the opportunity to write their own messages to each other in Anglo Saxon runes.

The class voted for their school council representatives this week. They planned their own speech, stating why the class should vote for them as a well as sharing their ideas on how they could make the school even better. The class then voted, writing two names on a slip of paper. Congratulations Ollie and Beth who were voted Kingfisher class school council members. 

Aella, Mai, Ethan and Lilia were very busy over them summer holiday as they completed the summer reading challenge. They had to read 6 books! Well done to all four of you. They received a certificate as well as a medal for all the fantastic reading they completed.
